Dr. Dre Explains How Social Media Ruined Artists Mystique
Dr. Dre Explains How Social Media Ruined Artists Mystique: Social media has been a blessing and a curse to people depending on the perspective that it is looked at from. In a recent interview with GQ, American rapper, songwriter, record producer, Andre Romelle Young, professionally known as Dr Dre, and long time associate Jimmy Iovine shared their thoughts on the social media era.
“I probably would’ve hated social media when I was coming up. Because there’s a certain mystique that gets destroyed, you know?” the Grammy winning producer explained. “I like the mystique. I like waiting. I don’t need anybody to know where I am every minute or what I’m doing. Or what I’m about to do. There’s a certain mystique that came along with music that was entertaining to wait to see what was about to happen.”
Jimmy Iovine chimed in with a hilarious take on the world of social media. “Old men do things they shouldn’t do. One of them is wearing V-neck t-shirts. And the other one is go on Instagram,” he said.
Unfortunately, Jimmy’s shot did end up hitting Dre. “I do have a couple of V-necks, though.”
The Dr isn’t a social media person as he doesn’t have an Instagram or Twitter handle. It is even said that his Twitter page isn’t handled by him.
